Free Health Screenings at Cleveland Asian Festival

The Cleveland Asian Festival is known for its cultural performances, family friendly activities and delicious food.  These components contributed to the Cleveland Asian Festival being named Best Festival in Cleveland.  The annual two-day event typically draws about 40,000 people to Cleveland’s Asia Town and they spend about $2 million at the event and in the area. 

But the most valuable contribution of the annual Cleveland Asian Festival may be the Health Pavilion.  Free Health Screenings are available for all attendees at the Cleveland Asian Festival.  Major health care organizations will be in attendance: Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth, Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, Asian Services in Action, and Cleveland Department of Public Health.

Screenings include vision, blood pressure, body mass index, glucose, cholesterol, lead testing, mammogram (by appointment), sleep disorders, bone density, HIV, and dental.  Health Education will also be available in relation to all of the screenings along with alternative medicine.

Health Pavilion Chair Michael Mendoza said “The health pavilion is a great way for festival goers to learn about their health and health services from local experts.  Health care organizations benefit from the high traffic of people attending the festival to promote their services."

Volunteer interpreters will be on hand to help translate many Asian languages for the health screenings.   The community should be made aware so they do not miss this valuable opportunity for free, culturally aware health screenings.
